is not a straight news journalist. take a look at "huffington post." they write, mitt romney wonders why anne romney's airplane windows don't roll down. yahoo, why plane windows don't roll down as romney would like. you tell me if there is a bias against mitt romney. >> they played off the maddow mocking moment. i think if you look at the main streams media which i think is more biased i can remember on these issues, the media has been really quick to decide that this is the end of the mitt romney campaign, 40 days out. and to just start sewing up that coffin. and failed to look at history. in 2000, george w. bush before going into the debates was 8 points down. so it's not a done deal. secondly the media loves to trumpet the mitt romney gaffes or mistakes or misstatement. of course, we haven't stopped hearing about the 47% remark. yet moment when obama says things like, you didn't build it if you built this business, you didn't build it, the media trumpets or takes on the white house talking points and claims that it was taken out of con detective by his critics. if you look at what he said it wasn
disappointments to me -- perhaps i can lay it on my own children because i am not sending items to "the huffington post" and elsewhere to explain that when the auto industry ran into trouble, it cut $80 billion in roughly six months. the financial -- it received $80 milliobillion dollars in roughlx months. how big is the sector that produces young adults? can you imagine an economy without young adults? if you want to spend in this economy, the young at sector, you never produces your cars. the auto sector. you know that the financial sector handles your accounts. you know who produces the food on your table. that is our cultural sector. autos is 1.5%. finance is 7.5%. how big is the young adult sector? 10.5%. it is without doubt the most important. depending on how you look at it, it is the largest sector in the economy. it is labor-intensive. you spend money in that sector, you will create jobs. you cannot imagine an economy without young adults. you know you have to invest in them. all of you know the returns on investing in kids. i will not go back through that. what i will say is that we as a
